Stripe must verify business identification, the risk level of the business, as well as meet a set of checks and requirements designed by Stripe, financial partners, credit card networks and regulators in order to transact.
Any business using Stripe must meet a set of checks and requirements designed by us, our financial partners, the credit card networks, and regulators.
These checks and requirements are intended to prevent abuse of the financial system, provide your potential customers with clear and useful information, and prevent material loss to your business or to Stripe.
If, at any time, we are unable to confirm that your business meets these checks or requirements, we may ask you to send us more information or fix the problem.
Depending on the severity of the issue, your account may not be able to process payments or receive transfers until the issue is resolved. We will let you know if that’s the case.
